Food is delicious. A wide variety of greek wines even by the glass. We tried the dishes of the day, onion soup, fresh mussels saganaki and pork tenderloin. Everything was great.

This is the only restaurant in the whole area that is not another touristic spot. We tried fresh fish and kalamari. Salads are big like a main course and really fresh. Desserts are delicious too. We really enjoyed our meal there. Thank you for all!

climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges
with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the
